The Batterer as a Parent and the Change Process for Abusive Men @ Online
Dec 11 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Batterer as a Parent and the Change Process for Abusive Men

Sponsored by Women In Need, Inc.

**Sorry for the inconvenience, but due to popularity of this training, we have reached capacity and had to close registration early. Please stay tuned for any and all upcoming events. Thank you!**

This two-day presentation will take a look at “The Batterer As Parent.” We will establish the profile of men who abuse women, describe the power dynamics and the psychologically poisoned atmosphere that an abuser creates for children in the home. We will examine the impact the batterer has on the parenting of the abused women, and look at “The change Process for Abusive Men.” We will also look at the elements of change, including consequences, education, confrontation, and accountability. A checklist will be reviewed for assessing whether an abuser has made meaningful progress in overcoming his abuse issues, with some explanation of how to detect false claims of change. We will also discuss specific roles professionals can play in contributing to change and accountability for abusers.

Strangulation with Angela Weekes
Nov 18 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Strangulation has been identified as one of the most lethal forms of domestic violence and sexual assault. Unconsciousness may occur within seconds and death within minutes. When domestic violence perpetrators choke (strangle) their victims, not only is this felonious assault, but it may be an attempted homicide. This training will focus on the background of strangulation investigations. We will cover topics such as the mechanism of injury, evidence documentation, working with victims, and scene investigation.

WHEN: November18, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

WHERE: Zoom

COST: FREE

Adult Victims of Violence: Why Don’t They Know Better?
Dec 10 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

This 6-hour training will address the numerous weapons offenders use to ensure their success, exposing the ways they manipulate their victims and the community,   means they use to get the victim to respond in a way that protects the offender, and the specific weapons they use to camouflage and confuse those investigating and prosecuting sexual offenses. This will include (mis)use of the relationship with the victim, use of alcohol to facilitate rape, institutional abuse and use of status by the offender, and manipulation of victim response to assault (production of “counterintuitive” behavior).

WHEN: December 10, 2021 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

WHERE: Zoom

COST: FREE
